Congrats to Michael and Raj. Couple positive things and comments:

1. Unlike the beta version, when clicking the browsers back page button it will go right back to the work page in a single jump. Excellent, I was hoping this would be in the final version.

2. The 2-page zoom automatically re-sizes to fit the screen size. So maximizing my browser window automatically increases the page size. That is very cool.

3. It's now possible to link to a page within a book with a unique (and simple to understand) URL. Excellent. My only suggestion would be the ability to have a search term highlighted at the same time - so I can link to a page with a certain word(s) highlighted. Google has this functionality and I often use it (Wikipedia citations for example).

4. Embedding is excellent. Wish we had more docs or examples how to do it?

5. The reader doesn't show the book cover. Is the only option to load the DjVu version or download the PDF?

6. Is it still called "flipbook"?

Looks great!
Stephen

To answer #5 re: book cover.

In two page mode it doesn't display, but switching to 1-page mode it can be seen.

thank you for the feedback.

on the name: it is part of our upcoming "bookserver" package, so instead of trying to keep lots of names alive, we just say "read online". informally and internally, it is the Internet Archive book reader.
